    I have autohide tooltips, that may have scrollable content.  

    But the tooltip hides before the use can move their mouse into the tooltip.  So, I want to delay the close to give the user a chance to scroll if desired.
    Right now, the user has to navigate the mouse through the pointer to the target to keep it open.

    Basically the auto-hide Tooltips are hidden immediately after the cursors leaves the target element or the tooltip content area- this is the expected behavior. In the current scenario I would recommend you to set the autoHide option to false. Alternatively you could use CSS to change the Tolltip's callout width, so it is easier for the user to move the cursor over the content area. For example:
      width: 10px;
    .k-callout-n {
     width: 10px;
